Three rescued after boat sinks on Firth of Clyde

Three people have been rescued after a fishing vessel sank on the Firth of Clyde following a collision.

BBC Scotland News understands the boat collided with a tanker at about 15:00 and sank at the scene.

HM Coastguard sent helicopters from Inverness and Stornoway to the incident, while RNLI lifeboats from Troon and Arran also attended.

The three people involved were described as being "safe and well" by the Maritime and Coastguard Agency.

The MV Isle of Arran assisted with the mayday call, which resulted in delays to some CalMac services.

The Maritime and Coastguard agency confirmed that the Marine Accident Investigation Branch, Police Scotland and MCA Survey and Inspection teams had been informed.
